November 9th, 2020 was the first day for Texas legislators to start filing bills they want to get passed in the 2021 legislative session. Already we are seeing attacks on privacy, second amendment rights and higher taxes. Bills have been filed that would repeal stand your ground laws, an assault weapons ban, high capacity magazine ban and even an internet censorship bill that Texas C4l previously defeated. While it will be hard for any of these terrible bills to make it into law we need to stay vigilant to make sure they die. We will continue to bring you legislative updates as we go.
On the other hand, there is some good news with bill filings, mostly on the front of policing for profit and criminal justice reform. Many bills dealing with banning or limiting Civil Asset Forfeiture have been filed along with some restrictions on onerous bond elections. Constitutional carry will be filed again and our chances are good to make progress on it! Stay tuned for more updates as we get into the legislative session!
